HC Deb 27 April 1981 vol 3 c346W
Dr. Summerskill

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what consideration he has given to the proposal of the Disablement Income Group that every disabled person should receive a national disability income.

Mr. Rossi

The Government remain committed to their objective of a coherent system of benefits for disabled people. When developing our plans we shall take account of the views of the Disablement Income Group and of other organisations concerned for the welfare of disabled people. As we have made clear, however, resources are not available for any new benefits at present.
